Just a day after “Bachelor” Brad Womack blogged that he considers Michelle Money “a remarkable woman” who has “many positive sides,” Michelle tells Life & Style that she had an affair with then-married NBA player Carlos Boozer. (Second scandal in one day, well done “Bachelor.”)
“Yes, I was in a relationship with Carlos while he was still married. What I did was wrong,” says Money. She met Boozer in Salt Lake City when he was playing for the Utah Jazz and implies that Carlos told her he was separated, though he didn’t file for divorce until March 2009, while he and Michelle were still involved.
“I should never have been so naive to assume what I was told was true,” says Money.
“I’m not trying to shy away from the fact that he was still married. I
don’t put that on Carlos. I don’t put that on anyone but myself. I feel
terrible for [his ex wife] Cece for that pain she’s had to go through and that I am a
part of it.”
“All I can do,” Michelle says, “is try to do better
with my life. I screwed up. But I can only try to do the best I can.”
Michelle and Carlos split in June 2009. Now she has become one of the most polarizing figures on this season’s “Bachelor,” mostly because she comes across as a complete lunatic. But maybe she’s just acting — she does have a movie coming out Feb. 4.
